The Coldest Night of The Year is a COVID-safe, family-friendly walk to raise money for homeless, hurting and hungry people in St. Marys.

All proceeds from this years walk in February will go toward supporting early intervention counselling for youth, counselling for youth witnessing domestic violence and youth homelessness, as well as the Nourish Equal Access Food Market and the new Community Developer and Support Worker. The walk aims to support UWPH’s Urgent Needs Fund, which has helped over 660 people across Perth-Huron since May.

You can choose to walk anywhere for any distance in St Marys during the month of February. You can sign up by visiting .

There will be a selfie station for you to share your excitement on social media and Toques available as well. Toques will be available to adults who raise $150 and to youth who raise $75.
